600 Highwaymen, USA

A Thousand Ways- An Encounter

Written and Created by Abigail Browde & Michael Silverstone

Obie Award-winning theatremakers, 600 HIGHWAYMEN, known for exhilarating performances that challenge the very definition of theater, have created a quietly radical response to this new world with A Thousand Ways. Both performances present a new chance at making contact with a stranger. It is a chance at being heard, a brave moment to show up.

An Encounter

You and a stranger meet on opposite ends of a table, separated by a pane of glass. Using a script and a few simple objects, a simple exercise of working together becomes an experience of profound connection with another person. In A Thousand Ways, you are the actor and you are the audience. Your words, actions, gestures, silence, thoughts, and willingness are the tools. You need no training. You are the expert.

This is an invitation. Will you attend?

This production was commissioned by The Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi, Stanford Live at Stanford University, and Festival Theaterformen, and was originally commissioned and co-conceived by Temple Contemporary at Temple University, USA.
